The Mariners have already been outscored by 35 runs in 20 games.
They are 2-2 in one-run games but have been blown-out by more than five runs six times already.
Nick Margevicius started the season in the bullpen but he started his last time out and scattered three hits in 3.1 innings scoreless.
After losing the last five games of a nine-game road trip, Houston returned home and took two out of three versus the Giants.
The offense was better with six runs in each of the first two games and five in the last. That came after scoring just five runs in three games at the Oakland Coliseum.
The Astros’ WAR leaders are not the guys one might expect. Greinke leads but after him comes Blake Taylor, Gurriel, Andre Scrubb and Framber Valdez.
Ninth on the list is Saturday’s starting pitcher, Christian Javier.
Javier is a rookie from the Dominican Republic getting his first action in the big leagues.
So far, so good. In just less than 16 innings (three starts and one relief appearance), he has struck out 16, walked just four and given up 10 hits. He has allowed four home runs, however.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction: it goes low.
Javier’s only relief appearance so far, which also happened to be his MLB debut, came against Seattle. He struck out one and gave up one hit in a scoreless seventh inning.
But between the Astros’ inconsistent offense and Margevicius’ potential to be tricky in a small dose, this one could pay well to stay under a relatively high number.
